The Wide Window
A Series of Unfortunate Events #3
Lemony Snicket (pseudonym)
middle grade fiction
82 / 3 stars
having heard the first 2 books on tape, The Bad Beginning and The Reptile Room , I was hooked. 3 children are orphaned and go from relative to relative and each story is about all the bad things that happen to them. They never die, but usually the relative they are currently living with does, and they are always pursued by Count Olaf, a distant relative after their immense fortune. A children’s series. Very educational in that the author is always using big words and explaining them in very funny, simplistic terms. Not depressing at all.
